An interesting but sad place. The story of the Natives being driven off the & the sacred palms being cut down by ranchers, along with draining the water table to the point they now have to pump water in to sustain the plants. Nice place for a morning walk, saw lots of wild life, roadrunners, rabbits & quail.

Do not be put off by exterior, there are great folks and wealth of information inside--also good toilets. The staff is very knowledgeable and will take the time to make sure your questions are answered, even the ones that you did not ask. Very fun group.

We were pleasantly surprised to get information about things to do in the area. It was too bad that we didn't have more time to explore the local attractions since most of our day was planned ahead of time. Helpful and friendly place

Apparently, they close the doors at 4pm and weren't open the morning that we went there either. :/ Parking is awkward in the back. Nice little park and sculptures next door, but not sure if that's related to the center. Located in the downtown strip. Easy to find. Not easy to figure out when they are open.

Nice NP info center manned by a staff of helpful Smokies who go out of their way to update you about the 29 Palms / Joshua Tree attractions. Has maps, brochures and up to date info & advice. Also has water in case you need more! Enjoy the desert. ...
